What a summer it has been all round. Seriously, well done everybody. From sporting success to bouts of searing heat, it will be a shame to finally see it leave, although we’re thrilled about the next few weeks too.
Our thirsty work making national headlines and driving social media interactions day in day out for clients has just been rewarded again- Smoking Gun PR will now be working with delicious Feel Good Drinks. The agency has developed a positioning of Feel Good Moments, and will be delivering a national consumer push encompassing media relations and experiential activity soon. So what’s not to be excited about?
We’ve also been busy delivering a colourful campaign for Oven Pride, aiming our efforts at the LGBT community during Manchester Pride on August Bank Holiday. How Clean Is Your Home legend Kym Woodburn and drag artist Kitty Tray helped drive engagement with our specially created golden glitter oven cleaning contest. Cue lots of media interest and social buzz during the day.
There’s also a lot of buzz surrounding our next industry event. Thursday, 8th September, will see us host ‘How To Avoid Garbage In, Gospel Out’ as part of the AMEC Measurement Month in Manchester. Taking place at our beautiful headquarters here on Bridge Street, basically it’s about sharing best practice insights and tips from the Land of Intelligent Measurement.
The idea is to ensure attendees are getting best value, performance and results for PR, social media and comms. Our MD, Rick Guttridge, will be joined on the day by Steph Bridgman and Andy Green, amongst others. Both morning and afternoon sessions are taking place, increasing the number of heads that can benefit from the shared wisdom. To book a place on either, click here.
It didn’t take long for Olympic fever to sweep through the office, and we’re eager for the Paralympics to begin too so we can re-assume our viewing positions and get back behind Team GB. Hopefully, then, we’ll be repeating this little slice of agency life again soon- which we took in honour of those returning triumphant from Rio, joining in with BA’s now-world famous gold-nosed airliner campaign. Not quite all hard work and no play, then, but very nearly.
